Logistics Pest Control

Vergo has a great deal of expertise in delivering pest control to the distribution and logistics sectors.

We understand the issues relating to operations in large warehouse spaces where goods are stored ready for delivery, and the importance of operating in secure environments. We help design strategies to deter birds to minimise the risk of products being contaminated by fouling, and we quickly identify and control any rodents that become present to remove the risk of damaged stock items and potentially your reputation.

At Vergo Health and Safety is taken very seriously and ensuring that our customers staff and products are protected is of key importance to us, while also being discreet and meeting strict Service Level Agreements (SLA’s) to ensure your premises remain pest free.

Importance of maintaining a pest free & safe supply chain

Distribution and logistics pest control is a critical aspect of maintaining a clean and safe supply chain. Pests such as rodents, cockroaches, and birds can pose a significant risk to the safety of food products, as well as cause damage to buildings and equipment. We implement various methods used for pest control in distribution and logistics, and understand the importance of implementing a comprehensive pest management program.

Methods of pest control in distribution and logistics

Chemical Pesticides

Chemical pesticides are commonly used in distribution and logistics centres to control pests. These chemicals are designed to kill or repel pests, and can be applied through a variety of methods such as baiting, spraying or dusting. However, chemical pesticides can also harm non-target organisms and may lead to the development of pesticide-resistant pests.

Biological Pest Control

Biological pest control is an alternative method that utilises natural predators, parasites, or pathogens to control pests. This can include using pheromone traps to control insects, or releasing parasitic wasps to control caterpillars. This method is considered to be more environmentally friendly than chemical pesticides.

Physical Pest Control

Physical pest control involves using barriers, traps, and other physical methods to control pests. This can include using screens to prevent birds from entering warehouses, or installing door sweeps to prevent cockroaches from entering buildings.


Sanitation is an important aspect of distribution and logistics pest control. Regular cleaning and maintenance of buildings and equipment can help to reduce the presence of pests and prevent infestations. This can include disposing of garbage properly, keeping food storage areas clean and free of crumbs, and maintaining proper ventilation to reduce humidity.

Integrated Pest Management for Logistics and Distribution

Implementing an integrated pest management (IPM) program is the most effective way to control pests in distribution and logistics centers.

IPM involves monitoring pests, identifying potential problem areas, and choosing the most appropriate pest control methods. By using a combination of methods, such as chemical pesticides, biological control, physical control, and sanitation, businesses can reduce the risk of pest resistance and minimize the impact on the environment.

In conclusion, distribution and logistics pest control is essential for maintaining a safe and efficient supply chain. A variety of methods can be used for pest control, including chemical pesticides, biological pest control, physical pest control, and sanitation. Implementing an integrated pest management (IPM) program is considered to be the most effective approach to pest control, as it involves a combination of methods to achieve the best results. It is important for businesses to work with professional pest control companies like Vergo to provide ongoing support to ensure their facility stays pest-free.
